April 4, 2013

Today was quite a day!  
We spent the morning at Bates College in Lewiston, 
for a special children's concert by the woodwinds section of the Portland Symphony Orchestra.
It was so nice to hear each instrument played individually before being played together.

This woman really stole the show!  The music being played was from Carnival of the Animals, written by composer Camille Saint-Saëns, and she was acting out the parts of the animals with such gusto!  :)

The afternoon was spent in Leeds at science class.  We bought some crickets in Lewiston to use in a couple of experiments to test insects' ability to withstand a flood (but not, alas, forever) and their ability to adapt to cold temperatures.  Good times!
